Accessing MPLS network via VPN

Hi -

I'm using a Cisco ASA 5510 8.4(5) ASDM 7.1(1)52.

I currently have a remote access VPN setup (IPSEC) and I'm trying to find out how to be able to access my other sites via my MPLS network while connected via VPN.

I'm able to access the primary site with no issues.

See:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Networking_Hardware/Routers/Q_22821183.html

Using this notation:
A is the main site/subnet
B is the MPLS remote site/subnet
C is the remote VPN site/subnet

What you need is this:
Packets from C destined for B via A first by VPN then by MPLS.
These packets must somehow get into the VPN in the first place.
These packets must appear at A and be routed to the MPLS device.
If the VPN and the MPLS devices are the same then this may help.
I've never been able to get it to work with RV042 site-to-site VPNs.

Example:
Main site with an important VPN link to a 3rd party using a 3rd party ASA as VPN device.
Reach the 3rd party from a remote site via another VPN on another VPN device.

I'd like to see a clear answer for How To? if it's possible.

I'm not sure how to accomplish that via ASDM.

B<>MPLS<>A<>VPN<>C

In many ways the MPLS is simpler than the VPN in that encryption need not be implemented.  Or, one may desire to run VPN over MPLS for security purposes.  In the latter case it would be:

B <> VPN(MPLS) <> A <> VPN(Internet) <> C

The key appears to be routing at A.
